While Hog Roast Clitheroe is well-known for our scrumptious food catering, we also rent out and sell our equipment to both domestic and professional caterers. We have a range of machines which we manufacture in our own factory, each with their own strong points, and each having the versatility to cook all kinds of food and not just hog and spit roasts. We love to see our hog roast machines being used and just recently one of our team members from the office attended the Clitheroe Food Festival and happened to see some of our equipment in use, including our Platinum and Titan machines.
Clitheroe Food Festival is an annual free event where food and drink producers gather to show off their wares, and there’s lots to do for all the family too. With entertainment in the streets, a funfair and Mad Science show at Clitheroe Castle, face painters and owl displays, there’s so much more to this festival than food, but our Hog Roast Clitheroe team member was there for just that!
This year there was a wonderful array of food including fruit, vegetables, organic dairy products, Asian delicacies and, of course, meat. Gradwell’s Hog Roast was there with one of our Titan machines and Bowland Pork, which is famous for its outdoor reared pork, beef, and lamb and does their own hog roast catering, attended with our Platinum machine, and we saw a fat hog being roasted to perfection inside it. Just like Hog Roast Clitheroe, Bowland Pork serves a traditional hog roast complete with apple sauce and sage and onion stuffing, as well as delicious crispy crackling.
Some really interesting producers attended the festival this year, including Dewlay Cheesemakers, Fatjax Chutney, Baxter’s Potted Shrimps, Choc Amor, Mr Fitzpatrick’s Vintage Cordials, Leagram Organic Dairy and R. S. Ireland’s Black Puddings. Clitheroe Food Festival is such a great day out for all ages and when there are fabulous caterers like Gradwell’s Hog Roast and Bowland Pork cooking up a storm using our excellent hog roast machines, it’s even more reason to attend. We hope to see you there next year!
